The Lady has acquired her own carriage aboard the British Pullman for a party of up to 24 readers, subscribers, Lady Ambassadors and their guests.

You will be in the heart of the action, seated in the grandstand area among other readers of The Lady. Then, rejoin the British Pullman for your return journey to London, during which you will be served with a sumptuous three-course dinner with champagne and half a bottle of wine per person.
